Wind energy is a renewable energy which produces no harmful emissions or waste products, ensuring protection for the environment. The UK has 40% of the total European wind resource - an untapped potential, in theory sufficient to meet double the country's electricity requirements. Each unit of electricity generated from the wind displaces one produced by a power station burning fossil fuel, with an associated saving of 860 grams of CO2. Provide affordable energy: Wind farms are already generating electricity more cheaply than new nuclear power. With the cost of wind-generated energy falling and the cost of gas rising, wind-generated electricity is also challenging gas for the lowest cost power source.
